Bitter Melon to Prevent or Treat Breast Cancer?
The use of Bitter Melon Extract (BME) has the potential to offer an alternative breast cancer treatment to the usual drug regimes without the side effects. A preliminary study looked at the use of bitter melon (Momordica charantia) extract (BME) as an anticancer agent. In lab tests, researchers found that “BME treatment of breast cancer cells resulted in a significant decrease in cell proliferation and induced apoptotic cell death.” The study further stated that BME “can be used as a dietary supplement for prevention of breast cancer.”
